The Skytteanska prize to appreciated electric power researcher

Published: 7 June 2016

Sarah Rönnberg, Associate professor of Electric Power Engineering, is awarded the Royal. Skytteanska prize to a younger researcher at Luleå University of Technology.

In the motivation it says that Sara Rönnberg received her doctorate in 2013, and she introduced the concept of supratones that are disturbances in the frequency range 2 to 150 kHz. Sarah Rönnberg was the first to successfully arrive at systematic models that explained what had been measured. This has inspired research in this area in other universities. She has also been very active in participating in international conferences and is a member of several international working groups and leads two of these. Despite her young age, she is internationally recognized and well known among researchers in electric power engineering. She has been a visiting professor at the University of Cordoba for one year.

In addition to her achievements in electric power research Sarah Rönnberg is very active in the BSc programme in electric power engineering at Luleå University of Technology. She is also a helpful and appreciated employee who has had a great contribution to the positive development of the research group in electric power engineering at the university.

The prize is worth 30 000 SEK and Sarah will also receive a diploma at the academic ceremony.
